Americans Disillusioned With Government May Be The New Face Of Domestic Terrorism

•, By Frederick Reese
Over the last two months, a continuous stream of public violence against the federal government its employees has added a troubling chapter to the nation’s long and tragic history of mass violence. A troubling escalation was shown Friday at Los Angeles International Airport, in the fatal shooting of shooting of Gerald Hernandez, an officer of the Transportation Security Administration.

Eyewitnesses at the scene reported that 23-year-old Paul Ciancia approached individuals, asking, “Hey, are you TSA?”. As they told him “no,” he moved on. One of the travellers questioned told Anderson Cooper that Ciancia approached him calmly, asked “TSA?” and walked away when he received a “no.” “I just shook my head,” Saryan said. “And he kept going.”

At a TSA search point, Ciancia pulled out an assault rifle from his bag and opened fire, making Hernandez the first TSA officer in history to be killed in the line of duty. Two other officers were also shot.
